Revue Politique

June 15, 2018

The Trudeau government continues its diplomatic efforts to sway influential figures in Washington in order to make progress on the NAFTA file, which has stalled significantly due to the U.S. president’s recent statements.

Pierre Donais welcomes Michèle Rioux, director of UQUAM’s Centre d’études sur l’intégration et la mondialisation, for a discussion on Canada’s international trade efforts.

MPs Andrew Leslie (parliamentary secretary for the minister of foreign affairs), Joël Godin (Conservative) and Robert Aubin (NPD) also comment on this issue.

Reporters Manon Cornellier (Le Devoir) and Joël-Denis Bellavance (La Presse) provide an update on the free trade and marijuana legalization files.
